tournament series

We are the premier organization for competitive youth basketball tournaments in the Austin, Georgetown, Pflugerville, Round Rock, Cedar Park, Leander and surrounding area.

how we got started

The RiseUp Tournament Series is a company formed and run by Michael Robertson. Over the past seven years he has independently produced and organized some of the most successful youth basketball events in the Central Texas area.


The RiseUp Tournament Series has strategically created eight major events for the 2018 travel team season, known as the Gr8 Eight! With three of their events, RiseUp – United We Stand, Summer Showcase and the Memorial Day Classic, being their signature events, drawing in hundreds of teams and players from all over the state of Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Louisiana, the RiseUp Tournaments Series have quickly become the “must enter events” for all youth basketball organizations in the South Region.


Our goal is to improve the relevancy of youth basketball in Austin and the surrounding areas. We aim to accomplish this by providing high quality events and attracting high quality programs to our area to compete. This will inevitably improve the quality of basketball played here in our own backyard. Additionally, given quality events to compete in locally, it is our belief that we can help our homegrown programs keep their talented youth athletes right here at home. Local programs will now have the ability to provide their players the same competitive opportunities they could get anywhere else without the significant travel cost. The RiseUp Tournament Series makes the dream a reality!
